Koivu out for a month (shoulder)

Quote:
The slumping Minnesota Wild will have to move forward for the time being without captain Mikko Koivu, who suffered what the team is calling an upper-body injury in Saturday's loss to the Blues.

Koivu appeared to suffer the injury on a hit by the Blues' Vladimir Sobotka.

Koivu has a team-leading 24 assists and 33 points for the Wild, who led the Northwest Division for much of the first half, but are currently clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot after winning just two of their last 15 games.

Really sucks. They're going to struggle like hell and who knows how he'll play when he's back.

Huge blow to the Wild. They looked like a good team until the injuries hit. They really should have been a playoff team this season now it looks doubtful after the injuries.

Noooo love Koivu and was really pulling for the Wild. It'll be tough without him.

I expected them to make the playoffs with no problem. It's a shame

Sincerely do feel bad for Koivu and the wild fans. They are a good team because when all are healthy and in the line up they play a TEAM game. Get well soon.

On a side note, Does Koivu now fall into the "made of glass" status such as Ales Hemsky? Hemmer always gets the label thrown at him because of his last three years of imjury, what about this guy now?

He only missed 11 games last year, and the last time he missed significant time was in 07-08 when Ohlund broke his leg. He's not even close to Hemsky's level yet.

ew, I remember that. Ohlund took a 2 handed ax swing at the back of Koivu's leg. So dirty and I remember being surprised he only got suspended 4 games for that.

He had a broken leg and broken hand which you can't really blame him for. The second shoulder injury in two years is a little concerning.

Really though, the team hasn't been healthy all year. Latendresse went out with concussion early November...Setoguchi went out with knee injury early December...Bouchard got a concussion mid December...Koivu went out with knee injury mid December...

And once those four guys went out, the team went to crap.

Another player not earning his huge contract. Not surprised. Need to get rid of guaranteed contracts.

Thank you for that clarification. He seems as though he has missed more. The reason I have noticed is because he is the straw that stirs the wilds drink. I always look for him when the Oil play the Wild.

Press the tank-button already. Wild always finishes in the middle, never making the playoffs but not getting the top 3 picks either.

I respect their work ethic and willingness to go for the playoffs every year, but man would it be nice to have Yakupov - some offensive talent the Wild could really use.

I want this team to tank and tank hard for this draft, we need multiple first rounders again. I'm hoping for Top 8 Overall.
